This is for Susan who mistakenly added her Winders family to mine at the wrong point as their are some similar names

After taking her tree apart I want to help her rebuild it.

Could be this birth? Births Mar 1865 (>99%) WINDERS William Prescot 8B 617 No this is the William who married Barbara.

I have found bmd for the children but cannot find William with father john who is a glass splitter.
There is one who is a collier but some else has them in their tree attached differently.
Ellen Taylor daughter of Thomas Smith has yet to be sorted too.

Can't you contact Susan yourself? If she has a tree on Ancestry there's a way to contact her.

LadyKira Report 27 Jan 2010 21:40

Oh dear
you have misunderstood.

I have my tree fully researched with certificates and census references.
I have John William Winders 1868 and know all about him.

My problem is that Susan is researching William Winders 1869.There are similar names in her family so she keeps on attaching my family to hers, She has got herself into such a muddle. She has given me access to her tree to amend it but a few months later it is all back. On speaking to other researchers I have found she has done the same thing. I think she is interested but has no research skills. She has given me permission to help her. I think she is probably related to me but at an earlier point. I have studied all the records I have available but I do not have Ancestry. I would like someone to have a look at them for me. Thankyou.

Hi Stevie

That would be the correct marriage for Susan's William. she has the certificate. Ellen is another story because her father is Smith I think I sent her the correct family once but she has built a a tree around her that does not make sense, But for now I want to concentrate on the Winders side. I came up with the same family as you but that would make another Winders tree wrong so I would like something definite before I broach that one.

Here are the Winders births for William around 1869. Yours is the first one LK. I have removed any whose name was not William Winders. I agree with the thought that the birth in Mar 1865 is the most probable.

However, all are correctly named and all could be the other William. Some we may delete because of the location.





Name: William Winders
Birth: Jan Feb Mar 1917 - Prescot, Lancashire



Name: William Winders
Birth: Jun 1866 - Bury, Greater Manchester, Lancashire

Now marriages. There are no marriages for Jessie Winders before 1932. Well not with this lot anyway. There are three possibilities, however she is a bit old and it might not be her because the deaths show her as Jessie Winders.
